About the Author

Teresa Garcia is a 30-something mother of two children with special needs (one is autistic, the other has chronic depression and anxiety issues at far too young an age), raising them "alone" in the small mountain town of McCloud, CA. She also has chronic anxiety issues herself. Writing is one way that she deals with stress, and her favorite themes to work with are growth and where the border between spirit and mundane really might be.

Just because she is on her own though, does not mean that she is "alone." Many thanks are due to the McCloud Community Resource Center, to her brother and his family, and her mother, for all their help.

When not drowning in university coursework for her International Relations degree, and chained to the computer, she loves to text role play with her long distance mate, write stories, hike, paint, meditate, and play games or read with her kids. She also writes quests for, and helps to maintain, the online browser-based RPG, Dragon Hearts.

She was raised in another mountain community, Big Valley, which she visits as often as she can spare time and gas, though not nearly often enough for her wishes.

Her parents always encouraged her writing and artistic talents. In 2005, she decided to pick up the dream of writing and publishing a novel once more, having shelved that (and the "Shadow Chronicles" manuscript) in her early college years due to the time constraints of motherhood at the time. In 2006 she released to the public her first novel in the "Dragon Shaman" series, "Taming the Blowing Wind," and has since published a second book in the series and a poetry book.

Currently Teresa has several manuscripts to work on, such as her "Dragon Shaman" series of novels and her current favorite serialized story, "Selkies' Skins," which will go to both print and E-book editions when the serial novel is complete. She also has a poetry book published, "Call of the Kami," and works with other authors to help them realize their dreams of being published.
